One of those currently posts

I'm in the mood for a currently post!  How about you??

Currently I am...



Feeling:  Hungry!  I just started Weight Watchers and I could really go for some chocolate or a pizza right now!!

Reading:  I will be starting Station Eleven very soon.  Like hopefully tonight!

Watching:  Wayward Pines!  OMG, I think I have found my new go-to show!  I can’t wait to tune in every Thursday night.  If you liked shows like Lost, X-Files and Twin Peaks, this will be right up your alley!

Thinking:  How happy I am they caught the 2 escaped prisoners in Northern NY!   I went to college only about 20 minutes from the prison they escaped from.  I have lots of friends still in that area, and one of my besties currently works at Clinton Correction Facility as a counselor!  So needless to say, I am very relieved it’s over. I’ll admit, it was an exciting story to follow though!

Wondering:  What I should do for my 40th birthday.  Hard to believe I’m turning 40 soon, right?   (OK- the end of December so not tooo soon).  I really want to take a trip somewhere,  Maybe New Orleans?  Florida? Somewhere closer?

Looking forward to:  Lunch tomorrow with a great friend I haven’t seen in years!  I am also looking forward to a week off from work next week (woo hoo!!) and the little 4 wheeling adventure the hubby and I are going on!

Looking at:  The July picture on my calendar which is of Bar Harbor, Maine. Can I transport myself here right now??


Hoping:  For better days for some very good friends who have had a lot of sadness lately.

  2. Such a fun list! Whenever I'm trying to watch my weight, I seem to feel hungry all the time! Like right now...I want to eat everything in sight. New Orleans is so much fun! I've been twice when I was a kid, I would love to visit as an adult.

    1. It was a little bit of an obsession for me! Definitely glad I was a couple hours away from the action though!

  4. Oh I like these "currently" posts! So much fun! I'm also currently hungry. It could have something to do with being pregnant though.. I'm always hungry!

  5. Hi! Saw your link on the Wading through Motherhood Facebook thread. I traveled to Chicago with my 2 besties from college the year we all turned 40. So I totally recommend a trip! It was fun and memorable. :)

  6. I'm dieting right now too, so chocolate sounds sooooo good. I'm also relieved they caught those prisoners. I have a friend that grew up there, and she has a lot of friends in the area too. Haven't heard of the book, so I'll have to check it out!

  10. This is such a cool idea for a post and a great way to get to know you! Thanks for joining the Link-It To Me link party, I hope you will party with us again next week!

  11. I found your blog through Painted Teacup Link-it Party - I can't believe how much we have in common! I also love coastal Maine and went to college in northern NY state - Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY. From what you said, I am guessing maybe Paul Smith's?

    We are also totally into Wayward Pines right now! There are so many good shows this summer - we are having trouble keeping up with all of them - also enjoying Under the Dome, Dark Matter, The Last Ship, and Stitchers - and soon Graceland and Extant are re-starting, too! Like I said, hard to keep up.

    And I love to read and have been dying to read Station Eleven - have heard so many good things about it. Hope you enjoy it! You might like my book blog, too :) Nice to "meet" you! (oh and I also have two boys but they are now 17 and almost-21 - enjoy these early years - they go by so fast!)

    1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Ah, Plattsburgh! A friend of mine lives there now. And I was a member of a SUNY sorority, Alpha Kappa Phi (Ago), because Clarkson didn't have its own sororities at the time so ours all had members from SUNY Potsdam & Clarkson.

      Nice to meet a fellow NYer (I live in Delaware now but miss NY state)
